Part 2: Discover the Dessert Aligned with Your Zodiac Sign
Are you inclined towards timeless classics such as New York-style cheesecake and chocolate-chip cookies, or do you find yourself exploring the latest dessert trends that dominate social media? This choice extends beyond mere culinary preference; it serves as a reflection of your inherent personality traits, influencing various facets of your life, including zodiac compatibility and career choices. While you may already have a beloved dessert in mind, we are here to open the door to a world of delectable possibilities you might be overlooking. Your zodiac sign can guide you towards a specific cuisine or recipe that you may not have previously considered.
With this in mind, we present desserts tailored to your zodiac sign, each crafted to resonate deeply with your unique character and tastes.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22)
Libra is the sign of balance, which means you’re always looking for an excuse to treat yourself. And why treat yourself if you’re only going to go halfway? Only the finer things in life for you. Hey, you have to balance out all life’s stress somehow! A dose of chocolatey decadence will do the trick. Truffles are the perfect fancy treat for this Venus-signed sign. Not only are they crowd-pleasers, but they’re also easily customizable for whatever suits your fancy. Add alcohol if you’re feeling extra bougie. You can even make them yourself. Simply crush up your favorite cookies, then combine them with a block of cream cheese and vanilla extract. Scoop into balls, and dip in chocolate before freezing.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21)
Chocolate cherry tart
Bold, sensual and complex, you don’t like to be limited. You believe that life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest, not micromanaged, which is why you don’t let anyone into your world without vetting them first … and why you also seem a little mysterious to others. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Scorpios go all-out when it comes to dessert. You need something that can be enjoyed slowly and savored, like a dark chocolate cherry tart. This dessert is deep, dark and mysterious, but once you bite in, it’s warm and familiar. Scorpio and a chocolate cherry tart have all these qualities in common. It’s also the perfect mix of sweet and sour, just like you. Just be warned that it’s so sinfully delicious, you might not want to share. The same goes for the most popular dessert the year you were born.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
Microwave mug cake
As the mover and shaker of the zodiac, you fearlessly leap into unknown situations without looking back. These traits are reflected in your food preferences, which always seem to change based on your latest adventures. But with so much change in your life, it’s important to have an old standby, and for that reason, the microwave mug cake is about to become your new BFF. Sagittarius is never in one place for too long, so they need a quick and easy dessert to pull together. A molten lava mug cake is a sweet way to end a fun evening by yourself or with your closest pals. It takes only a few ingredients that you can literally get anywhere in the world, and then you can customize it based on your favorite flavor of the month.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
You’re an ambitious go-getter who will work tirelessly to create the life you want, and it normally takes a special occasion for you to treat yourself to a luxurious dessert. But you deserve nice things, Capricorn! You won’t feel too guilty indulging in a high-brow twist on an old-school favorite, like warm espresso cookies with a glass of cold milk. This dessert is sweet enough to satisfy your cravings without feeling too over the top. Plus, if you really need to justify it to yourself, it is a practical dessert when you think about it. Capricorn is always working away, often long into the night, and a sweet treat can break up the grind. And adding instant coffee to your favorite cookie recipe gives it a caffeine boost to keep you striving for success.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
Pineapple upside-down cake
Aquarius loves challenging the status quo with new ideas and perspectives. You see things differently than most people, and your eclectic tastes reflect your free-spirited approach to life. When it comes to your favorite foods, this rare zodiac sign looks for a few things: great ingredients, unexpected flavor elements and a visual presentation that makes your jaw drop. And you won’t be able to resist a new revival of an old favorite: a pineapple upside-down cake. Aquarius loves to turn things upside down—usually perspectives, systems and ideas—but why not cake too?. Aquarius would love a retro dessert that looks nothing like anything else on the spread of the dessert table. Mission accomplished.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)
Sex in a pan
Yes, this is actually the name of a dessert, but we’ll get to that in a second. First, let’s talk about Pisces, the creative and artistic visionary of the zodiac. You love to spend your time imagining new ways to experience the world around you, savoring each experience to its fullest. And—news flash!—you’re not as innocent as people might think, which is why we knew you’d get a kick out of this dessert. But we do have some other reasoning beyond that. As the most dreamy and fluid sign of the bunch, you need a dessert to take you to a faraway land once you have a bite. Sex in a pan is a messy, mouthwatering dessert designed to let your senses intertwine. Never heard of it? It’s made with a pecan crust and layered with cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding and vanilla pudding—then topped with whipped cream topping and shaved chocolate. Just throw the layers together, and don’t worry about the mess. That’s part of the fun!
